It was a race against time through the city, to the water’s edge to capture a view of the last fleeting rays of light on the horizon. My journey was a race against the vanishing sun, a race I was determined to win. My efforts were rewarded with an exhilarating moment of triumph as I arrived on the shore just in the nick of time, as the sun gracefully slipped below the world's edge, saying farewell with one last golden burst of light. Above me the sky was a masterpiece in itself. Layers of blue, some areas impossibly saturated, created a breathtaking panorama. It left me with an overwhelming surge of inspiration to recreate this moment so laden with magic and mystery that words fall short, save for an appreciation of its sheer, exquisite loveliness.
